I was flattered when Becky at Kinexxions tagged me with the Thinking Blogger award six months ago, and a little embarrassed, as I feel like a pretty inadequate thinker when I read the terrific work of others in this genea-blogging community. Well, my moment of undeserved glory has long since passed, and I'm even more embarrassed to say that I never finished writing my response to the award.
So, in the interest of wrapping up the business of 2007 in my usual meme-slacker style, I'll dispense with the rules and instead just offer up some links I think might be of interest to you:
- strange maps - You'll have to go there and see! History, fantasy, even a map tattoo, it's always interesting and you're bound to learn something new.
- Paleo-Future - a look back at what people of the past thought the future would be like.
- Michigan in Pictures - more than just pictures, interesting text too!
- WordReference - an excellent online translation tool for Spanish, French, Italian, and now Portuguese. Unlike the quick & dirty translators, this one aims to help you use a language correctly. I hope they add German someday!
- Fashion-Era - a wonderfully informative source for fashion history and more. Learn about clothing rationing during WWII, Edwardian corsetry, Victorian hair and hat styles... you get the idea. You may find information that will help you date your old photos.
